The local government of Tibet recently issued a new policy, granting local women an entire year of maternity leave on full pay. The policy has triggered nationwide discussion. Some netizens praised it for better protecting women’s rights, while the other part worried that the long term (national regulations only give women 98 days of maternity leave) will further aggravate gender discrimination in the labor market.
